Still early morning light in Sweden 4:25

Best thing about summer. Early sunrises. Can you tell the difference between the picture above taken at 4:25 in the morning and  the picture taken 21:00 in the evening? It is almost the same, isn't it? This time of year I like very much 🙂 Anna

Shortest day of the year – kortaste dagen på året

Finally the darkness is about to cut daylight a bigger slack! Spring will soon be on its way I hope 🙂 Äntligen har vi kommit till punkten där dagsljuset återigen får längre tid av dygnet. Nu vänder det! Anna

Green tree

Very simple drawing done in a sketch program on an old phone. It was hard to see the screen in the sun, so it's not a great drawing, just a bit of fun playing with colors and different brushtypes. The grass was supposed to be green, but now I see it's almost yellow. Well it's… Continue reading Green tree

Funny hat

Today I suddenly saw what a funny label my sun hat has Maybe we Swedes still have some viking hooligan blood in us 😉 But I have to disappoint you. I just put on the hat and sat down in shadow reading the newspaper. No hooligan acting at all, hehehe Anna

Fun with pine cones

If you have a few of these You can do this And believe it or not, but they actually work just as real flowers They shut down if it's cold and rainy. When the sun comes back they open up again Anna

Lilacs in rain – Syrener i regn

Lilac time is a beautiful season in Sweden. It doesn't matter if it rains or the sun is shining. They are so lovely in every weather. I did this drawing on ipad a couple of years ago.

Flower unknown name

I was supposed to make a small tulip painting, but I don't think it looks like a tulip so this is an unknown flower with no name. I'm not great in painting things out of memory. I just remembered the red color and the green leaves. I have to practice more, I realise that. Anna

Is Spring really that fantastic?

Ritu wrote a pollen haiku that made me remember how Spring can be for some of us. One of my relatives used to say it would be nice if one could use the bottle brush through the ears to get rid of that itchy feeling in the ears in Springtime. Spring also have a bad… Continue reading Is Spring really that fantastic?

Soon tuliptime :)

They are almost wide awake, our tulips. After a period of back to winter temps the sun shined today and gave some warmth back to us. I wait for tulips to bloom, then it's Spring for real here! Spring flowers are so lovely 🙂 My take on tulips (monotypi-teknik) Anna

Sailboat season starts

Today I saw a red sailboat with white sails in the afternoon sun. So beautiful and the longing for a warmer and brighter season grew stronger. The Spring sun is warm but the winds are still cold. Not warm spring or summer yet. My interpretation of the boat. I paint on rock with chalk crayons.… Continue reading Sailboat season starts

Sweden in late April 8:30 pm

We're heading to the Summer season in a month or so. That means bright evenings. The sun is already still up way past 8:30 pm and in the Summer it's even longer than that. This is a good part of April despite the weird weather we had lately. Evenings that looks like this: Anna
